Global Instinct - International Strategy 2016-2020
With Global Instinct taking the institution into the world, by 2020, DMU will be the definition of a 21st century global university
DMU people will be global and positively contribute to the world, through a network which facilitates international partnerships, exchange and research, and a focus on the student.
The university’s newly evolved themes have a new focus; nine game-changers which follow in the footsteps of #DMUglobal – the international experience programme pioneered by DMU.
A festival in late spring 2016 will celebrate each of the game-changers in action.
